The above image shows a live streaming system that uses multiple security cameras. The device on the far left is our
VM-HD4 4ch CCTV multiplexer. There are (4) HD security cameras hard wired to the multiplexer using RG59 Siamese coax cable. The multiplexer allows you to combine the video signal from up to 4 BNC security cameras. You can also use pre-made security camera cables for these systems.
The HDMI video output of the multiplexer is connected to this
HDMI to USB converter / adapter. The HDMI output of the USB converter box (model HDMI-U3) is connected to the USB thunderbolt input on the Macbook computer. This allows the Mac to capture the HDMI video signal from the multiplexer. Open Broadcaster Software (OBS) is installed on the Mac. OBS is a free / open source broadcast streaming platform. It is the best that we have tested and it works with YouTube, Facebook, Twitch, and many other video streaming platforms. In addition, this system also works with Zoom video streaming via ManyCam web streaming software (also free to download).
Here is another view of how these multiple camera streaming systems are setup. The blue lines are the coax cables with BNC connectors. The green line is a standard HDMI cable. The red line is a USB3 to USB3 cable with e USB3 to Thunderbolt adapter on the end that connects to the Macbook (not required for Windows). The orange cable is a CAT5e network cable to connect the laptop to a Network router that has a high speed Internet connection. Please note that these systems are not limited to 4 cameras. Any of these
HD CCTV multiplexers can be used, including a 9ch and 16ch model.
Here is an archive of an actual YouTube Live stream video broadcast from CCTV Camera Pros warehouse in West Palm Beach, Florida. The system that was used consists of the HDMI-U3 (HDMI to USB capture box), four HD security cameras, and the VM-HD4 CCTV multiplexer. *Please note that you may need to click the image twice for the video to begin playing.

Streaming Wildlife Cameras
CCTV Camera Pros has deigned streaming camera systems for customers for over 10 years. Many of our early streaming customers were setting up wildlife cameras in Florida and other areas of the USA to watch pigs, big cats, raccoons, deers, birds of prey, and bears. One of the reasons that our CCTV cameras have been so popular for wildlife streaming applications is the availability of inexpensive weatherproof rated / outdoor security cameras.
